, produce more american make energy from oil, natural gas, clean coal, biofuel. ladies and gentlemen, a lot of people do not understand this. i love to hear them talk about their energy policy -- which is drill, baby, drill. there are more oil and gas rigs pumping today that all of the rest of the rigs in the entire rest of the world. that is a fact. that is why we are importing less than we have in decades. that is why we are in the position we are moving in. there is an exponential supply of natural gas if done right and real energy available in this country. -- and renewable energy available in this country. the voted against it. we doubled the fuel economy standards for cars and trucks by 2025. [cheers and applause] by the way, that will save 12 billion barrels of oil over the period of time. i do not know how they do not think conservation is part of it. they do not know. third, we are going to maintain -- right now, there is a study pointing to the most productive workers in the world. they are american workers. they are three times as productive as our friends in china. ladies and ge
iran's nuclear program. according to the international atomic energy agency, during the last year alone, iran has doubled the number of energy uses in its underground nuclear facility. at this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomic bombs, and that is by placing a clear nucleare on iran's weapons program. [applause] red lines do not lead to war. they prevent war. look at nato's charter. it made clear that an attack on one member country would be considered an attack on all. new's redlined helps keep the peace in europe for nearly half a century -- red lines have helped keep the peace in europe for nearly half a century. and help preserve the peace for decades. it is the failure to place red lines that has often invited aggression. if it were drawn in the 1930 baltimore, world war ii might the been avoided -- 1930's, world war ii might have been avoided. the first gulf war might have been avoided. clear, red lines will also work with iran. earlier this year, they threatened to close the strait. the united states drew a clear, red line. iran backed
229,600 plant between 1942 and 1944, we can build and install enough renewable energy to provide our country's needs to reconsider the rebuild our light rail, and solid buildings, plan buffer zones to protect our rivers and streams, provide health and education social services for our population and create the means for farms and small businesses to prosper. do not believe for one minute when they say we cannot afford it. one wall street wanted a bailout, congress and the fed bail them out with trillions. while working people struggle to get by, more than 90% of income -- >> time. the next opening statement will be from bill enyart. >> i want to thank robert waller for hosting this event. i would like to take a few moments to tell you about me. i have lived and raised my family and paid taxes in the district for more than 40 years. i am the son of a factory worker and spent 35 years in uniform protecting our great nation in the state of illinois. i could never attended college with the gi bill and student loans. there are serious policy differences between my opponents and me. i hope
. for example, clean, renewable energy that saves lives and saves money. in order to get to the solutions, we need to fix the broken system. i became with the green party because it is the one that is not bought and paid for by the usual suspects, by wall street and the big corporations that bought out the two major parties and are giving them the marching orders. the green party provides a vehicle to advance the solution that the american people are clamoring for. as we look at the u.s. debt clock, the higher number on the bottom of the screen an excess of $16 trillion. with that in mind, how do you jump-start the u.s. economy? what is the role of the federal government and how do you pay for it? guest: fortunately we have some good examples. there is a track record for how to do this. we can go back to the great depression and see that a new deal went a long way to move us out of the depression. that means creating jobs. you can look back to win the national debt began to skyrocket. it was with the crash of the economy after the abuse, waste, and fraud on wall street and other areas as well
. >> on energy security, i think over the last 70 years, every president and every candidate has said that energy security our energy dependence will have an importance. look what the critics are saying. they are saying that the u.s. government has a cohesive energy security policy. by that, i mean energy independence. no one has articulate what that is. in terms of energy security, is that a fair criticism, especially of the obama administration? if so, what is the policy? how does it differ from that romney administration? >> i do not think that is an accurate criticism. look at the administration's's policy. the president has tried to reduce our dependence on foreign sources. we are focusing on producing energy sources at home and clean energy as well. at the same time, he has worked with auto industry to try to increase the " requirement for mileage. he has tried to put in place incentives for other kinds of conservation and so forth. what is lacking is a national .onventionconsensus capitol hill has not agreed on a consensus. i think the president has been very clear and laying out what he t
thoughts on developing more energy alturntives in this country offshore drilling, oil from federal lands that sort of thing. >> when i was secretary, i went up to anwr, up in alaska. i had to go up to take care of the alaska data. i found out that the area we want to drill in anwr is about 2,000 acres in 30,000 square miles. postagee putting a stamp on a football field. we can drill and drill correctly. they say the caribou walk through. the caribou are smart enough to walk around. the environmentalists may not be but the caribou are. we can trill up there effectively bringing that oil down to member america. the keystone pipeline which my opponent is opposed to, swell the president, i've been thereupon. they have more tar sands oil than we need in america for the next 25 years. and all they want to do is build a pipeline down through the dakotas, down to houston to refine the gas. we can do that. we've got natural gas. we produce more natural gas than saudi arabia. i'm fed up to -- with sending money to opec. i want us to be energy endependent and we can do it by drill, natural gas and
will continue with the fisher plan because the fisher plan is going to reduce energy costs. we are lucky to have public power in this state, and we will get energy costs reduced. that helps businesses to grow. the fisher plan is going to allow for free and fair trade where you have an administration hopefully that will get those trade agreements to congress and get them signed so that our economy can grow. we have done it in nebraska. we have grown jobs here in the state of nebraska and provided property tax relief. those are specifics, not slogans of the fisher plan. i haven't heard that from the kerrey plan. >> thank you. this is the nebraska senate debate. a reminder to give us your thoughts on the debate on twitter. tonight we are putting questions to republican deb fisher and democrat bob kerrey. the next two questions will come from the candidates themselves. they will each ask one question of the other. we will begin with senator fisher asking senator kerrey a question. >> mr. kerrey, you talk about cutting spending. you talk about but partisanship. -- bipartisanship. yet when you were in
and politics in the persian gulf. and really focus on the prominence of this area and the energy market. the persian gulf area as 60% of the world's proven oil reserves. and 40% of the world's proven gas reserves. in fact, six of the top 40 in the countries in terms of proven oil reserves are and the gulf. five of the country's top oil producers are also located there as well. the added states foreign policy, toward the persian gulf, has focused on ensuring the free flow of oil from the gulf to global markets. and opposing the nomination of that area. traditionally, the soviet union, but in recent decades, iraq under saddam hussein. this has embroiled us and two wars. and lead to a significant military, a commitment of military assets in the area. the question arises regionwide is the united states extended such efforts and so much of its assets? when we are a number three oil producer in the world. and we import less than 20% of our crude imports from the gulf. these are the issues we will explore today. is the global energy marketplace changing? is the persian off oil and gas still im
and your energy. gosh, you guys are good. and 39 days is a long, long time in any campaign, don't be fooled. we've got to turn all of this energy and excitement into action. it doesn't count if it doesn't go into action. we have to work right up until the very end. so we need you to find one of our volunteers today. they're around here. they have clip boards. we need you to sign up with them to make calls, knock on doors, to help get the vote out on campus and in the community and we also need you to talk to everyone you know. your friend, your neighbors, that cousin you haven't seen in a while that student sitting next to you in class who you know is not registered. you know it, and for our students, especially, talk to your parents and grandparents. i can't tell you how many grandparents came up to me and told me that the only reason they voted for barack obama in 2008 was because of what it meant for their grandchildren. so what you say matters more than you know. so talk to them. tell them what's at stake in this election. remind them of all of the wonderful things this president has ac
are dealing with a surge in global energy, food, and commodity prices, and a banking collapse more than four years on, is blocking the arteries of our economic system. the idea it is -- if the government regulates it more, or borrows and spends more, we would achieve long and lasting growth is not credible. if you're being attacked by liam fox by one side and edwin on the other, you're in the right place. [applause] what we need is a plan that is tough enough to keep the bond markets off our back. that is loudest -- allowed us to and ar psendin spending cuts plan that will see public ofnding account for 42 % gdp, higher than any point between 1995 and 2008 when the banks collapsed. and because it has the confidence of the market, we have room to create a business bank and an 80 billion pound funding for lending, the biggest of its kind anywhere in the world. so much of this is about perception. is how muchtell you they have to legistlate for. let's not let the charicature go unchallenged. if it was as dogmatic as the critics claim, i'd demand a plan b. you were right. overwhelming rejecting
energy, food and commodity prices. an existential crisis in the eurozone. and a banking collapse which, more than four years on, is still blocking the arteries of our entire economic system. ranged against these forces, the idea that if government just deregulated a bit more as liam fox proposes, or borrowed and spent a bit more as ed balls proposes, we would, at a stroke, achieve strong and lasting growth, is just not credible. in my experience, if you're being attacked by liam fox from one side, and ed balls from the other, you're in the right place. [applause] you see, what is needed -- and what we're delivering -- is a plan that is tough enough to keep the bond markets off our backs, yet flexible enough to support demand. a plan that allowed us, when the forecast worsened last year, to reject calls for further spending cuts or tax rises and balance the budget over a longer timescale. a plan that, even at the end of this parliament, will see public spending account for 42 per cent of gdp -- higher than at any point between 1995 and 2008 when the banks collapsed. and a plan that, bec
in half by 2020, produce more american-made energy from oil, natural gas, clean coal, biofuel. ladies and gentlemen, a lot of people do not understand this. i love to hear them talk about their energy policy -- which is drill, baby, drill. let me tell you something. you all realize there are more gas and oil rigs pumping today than all the rest of the rigs in the entire rest of the world. do you know that? that's a fact. that's why we are importing less than we have in decades. that's why we are in the position we are moving into. ladies and gentlemen, there is an exponential supply of natural gas if done right and renewable energy available in this country. the voted against it. we doubled the fuel economy standards for cars and trucks by 2025. [cheers and applause] by the way, that will save 12 billion barrels of oil over the period of time. i do not know how they do not think conservation is part of it. they sure don't know it. right now, there is a study pointing out the most productive workers in the world are american workers. they are three times as productive as our friends in
in congress and as a result we have not been able to get much done. my energy policy involves making sure [inaudible] short term, long term, medium- term growth for energy. i just want to make sure everybody knows i will be a consistent champion for wind and virtual field in this district and congressman king has not been. [applause] >> congressman king, your response? >> i happen to be the american went it industry champion designated by the wind energy association. [applause] i've supported by the renewable fuels industry across the board, so far as i know. we are the number one renewable energy producing district in all of america. when you add the other counties going east to make this new district, we will easily be the number one renewable energy producing district and i have been part of that. i am proud of what has been accomplished by your investment in your risk. let's keep that up. [applause] >> the next question comes from our panel at northwestern college. >> [inaudible] according to the state data center of iowa, latina's make up 5.2% of the state's population. four counties
the tax code. we need to reduce energy costs. we need to help small businesses to create those opportunities. >> senator kerrey, you have 30 seconds. >> senator fischer signed a pledge that would require you should pay the same taxes employees pay. under your balanced budget, unemployment would double. i have examined the amendment, and it would double unemployment. >> i disagree. with regard to the buffet rule, if you are going to tax every millionaire, that can run the government for 17 hours. let's look for businesses to create jobs and make opportunities in the state, and we can do it by reducing regulations, by having an energy plan, by repealing "obamacare." >> the next question. >> a question in this cycle is, are we better at today than we were four years ago? are we? >> no, we are not better off with our economy, with our position in the world. we have seen a failure in leadership with this administration and with congress that is locked in gridlock. we need to send leaders to washington who will make tough decisions. i have shown you that i have been effective in nebr
energy cuts. -- costs. my plan will allow for free trade when you have administration that will get this trade agreements to congress and signed sow our economy can grow. we have done it in nebraska, we have provided property tax relief. those are specifics, not slogans. i have not heard that from his plan. >> this has been the nebraska u.s. senate debate. i am dennis kellogg. a reminder to give us your thoughts on the debate on twitter and facebook. tonight we put questions to deb fischer and bob kerrey. they will each ask one question of the other, and we will begin with senator fischer. >> you talk about cutting spending, you talk about bipartisanship, yet when you were in the united states senate, when the welfare reform bill came up, he fought against it. that was a bipartisan bill, put forward by president clinton. i liked the bill. john kerry and joe biden voted for the bill. that was an important piece of legislation. vote againstp cutting spending, requiring people to work for their checks, and against that landmark legislation? >> i did not boast against -- i did not vote
here in ohio all across america we have a lot of our own energy. let's go get that energy and use it and get people back to work. gas, oil, coal all of the above. it is here, it is ours. you know he is going to do -- he is when you say yes to the keystone pipeline so we can get the oil coming to our country. number two, you know, in our state, and our midwestern manufacturing states, we have lost a lot of work. a lot of people in the prime of their lives, they are in between -- delphi is a great example. to get back into a career of the 21st century so that american dreams can be placed back within their reach. we need to fix our schools. we need to honor the parents and the children, and not the special interests standing in the way of the education reforms. we need trade that works for america so we can make more things in america, sell them overseas. but there's one thing that the four of us have talked about, we have worked on. it is a really simple idea. we cannot keep spending money we just do not have. we have got to balance the budget. we have got to get the debt under con
renewable sources of energy. and domestic sources that are cleaner and better. and i'm proposing a plan that will give tax credits and tax incentives for the rapid development of new kinds of cars and trucks and buses and factories and boilers and furnaces that don't have as much pollution, that don't burn as much energy, and that help us get out on the cutting edge of the new technologies that will create millions of new jobs. because, when we sell these new products here, we'll then be able to sell them overseas. there is a ravenous demand for them overseas. now, another big difference is governor bush is proposing to open up some of our most precious environmental treasures, like the arctic national wildlife refuge for the big oil companies to go in and start producing oil there. i think that is the wrong choice. it would only give us a few months' worth of oil and the oil wouldn't start flowing for many years into the future. i don't think it's a fair price to pay to destroy precious parts of america's environment. we have to bet on the future and move beyond the current technologie
studies we have given to pakistan about energy that have been put to the shelf. it has not been able to respond. that is the pakistan failure. it is the u.s. failure, our inability to look after. the tendency to see the problems of counter-terrorism as an element of the relationship, or as i would put it, when you look at pakistan through the telescope of afghanistan, you see only one thing. if you insist on policy discussions in washington on the counter terrorism issue, focused on the immediate needs, very real and important needs, life and death needs, of the american effort in afghanistan, you run the risk of losing track of those goals that people like richard and hillary clinton, etc., articulated back in 2008. the american problem was that we were unable, i believe, to sort out in an effective way. when richard asked me to take this job, he made it quite clear -- those of you who know him, he is humble. he created a system where he was the sun, and all of the planets go around him. then the sun went out. the power of his personality was something we really needed. especially b
, respond to what she said. >> regarding oil, if anybody thinks by raising taxes on energy producers will not be passed on, they will pass all of those off to our motorists and homeowners and everybody knows that. if you want to have a comprehensive discussion about energy, we should have it, a true all of the above approach. she is against the keystone pipeline. she is also against -- in favor of wind and solar, but we need more of an approach in that. let me talk about the buffet rule as well. the buffett rule, it funds the government for a day. more importantly, we have our own buffett rule in massachusetts. when she has been talking about everybody paying higher taxes, she had a choice to pay higher taxes herself, and she chose not to do that. number three, all of her criticisms on me is i do not want to raise taxes. that is correct. i do not want to raise taxes on any american in the middle of recession. when i go to businesses, they do not say take all my money and bring it to washington. they say we have been taxed and regulated enough, and the only person here who is a fiscal
. they are disgusted. they are disgusted with that lack of progress on a long list of growing problems, energy problems, environmental problems. our health-care system, our tax system. our regulatory policies. washington has taken another five-week vacation. it took a five-week vacation in august, worked two weeks, taking another five-week vacation. if these people did a better job, they would not have to take some much time off to campaign, raising money, because if they did a good job, people will reward you. when you do not do a good job, you have to spend a lot more time doing that. >> de you think we would be better off with a parliamentary system, where one party to control things for a time, and we did not have to deal with a republican house, a senate of democrats, so we are always at this gridlock? we kind of let the supreme court make the decision because the politicians cannot do it. >> we need to work at bath, but i have no idea how, because as you know, that is the way it is. it is human nature to maintain the status quo until the things get terrible. then people get flexible. that is the
in infrastructure programs, like rail to dulles, and we innovate and come up with new alternative energy industries of tomorrow. we have got to fix the budget, and to do that, we need a balanced approach in both the short term and long term, and i hope we will talk a good deal about that, but the most important thing we need to do is put results over rhetoric and put substance over sound bites. our ideas are not the problem. it is our willingness to work together, and if i have the honor to serve as governor, i will do that as i have in the past. thank you. >> thank you. governor palin? -- governor allen? >> whether it was to convince jobs to come to fairfax or investing in our schools and colleges and working with leaders of both parties to secure funding for projects like dulles rail, and i am very grateful for that spirit of partnership. i also want to thank my friend tim kaine. we both love virginia and have worked hard to make it better. at a time when so many feel that our country is on the wrong track and politics are so petty, i hope we can have a conversation here that can inspire people t
, but -- let's take the energy sector. it is an example where you already have ferc, and it has its regulatory authorities, some of which already touched on cyber. when we do a deep dive, we are looking at what is already happening in that project interceptor. >> and you look at it is any good? >> yes, to make sure the sector it is as secure as possible. >> is it going to be a new executive order or an expansion on existing directives? >> i do not want to go into detail here, but i would say that it is in the format of a new order. >> you are still hopeful about legislation? >> we have to. the executive can only do so much. the decision does me to the address. one of the benefits of the debate in congress this past spring and summer was there was a lack of basic cyber awareness in the congress, and what this means and what the security for our abilities of the country really are, i testified several times and said we deal with threats emanating from all over the world, all types, but the two we see most often are aviation and cyber. cyber has been on a growth curve like this. congress is now m
with countries around the world to deepen ties of trade and investment, and science and technology, energy and development -- all efforts that can spark economic growth for all our people and stabilize democratic change. but such efforts depend on a spirit of mutual interest and mutual respect. no government or company, no school or ngo will be confident working in a country where its people are endangered. for partnerships to be effective our citizens must be secure and our efforts must be welcomed. a politics based only on anger -- one based on dividing the world between "us" and "them" -- not only sets back international cooperation, it ultimately undermines those who tolerate it. all of us have an interest in standing up to these forces. let us remember that muslims have suffered the most at the hands of extremism. on the same day our civilians were killed in benghazi, a turkish police officer was murdered in istanbul only days before his wedding. more than 10 yemenis were killed in a car bomb in sana'a. several afghan children were mourned by their parents just days after they were ki
the big problems in this country. no. 1, we have so much energy in this country. let's get that energy in this country, create jobs. that will build prosperity. oil, gas, coal, nuclear, renewables, all of the above. the obama administration is standing in a way of what could be a promising explosion of energy. we have so much oil and gas because of new technology that we know how to get without harming the environment. this puts people to work and creates manufacturing jobs. it lowers gas prices. it lowers the cost to heat your home in the winter, to cool it in the summer, the electricity we pay. that means your paycheck goes farther. people living on fixed income have more income to live on. this is important. with an energy policy like the keystone pipeline, opening our land for development, we can stop sending our money to the middle east. it helps our economy and paychecks. [applause] another area -- we have all these people in between jobs. for every person who got a job last month, nearly four people stopped looking for a job. we are slipping behind. what we see when we look at t
on the un. it's about controlling resources, global resources such as energy, food, water, and to eventually deny the people private ownership of property. it is being implemented all over the world. host: back to twitter -- richmond, virginia, republican line,. caller: i think that ahmadinejad should not be in the united states on the holiest day of the year. i concur with ron paul. -i -- we have done enough. we should stop. host: how old are you? caller: 18. host: closely following all the foreign policy issues? caller: yes. i plan to vote for mitt romney. host: because of foreign policy issues or economic/domestic issues? caller: both. host: now to a democratic caller in pennsylvania, don. caller: the u.n. has failed is rail many times. one time when egypt threatened to close the strait and the war against the egyptians started. they failed israel miserably in the north at the southern part of a non. southern part of lebanon. they promised that has a law would not be allowed to re-arm. -- hezbollah would not be allowed to re-arm. on august 10 of 2012 in the inquiry there was an article ca
, science and technology, energy and development. all efforts that can spark economic growth for all our people and stabilize change. but such efforts require mutual respect and interest. no government or company, no school or ngo will be confident working in a country in which people are in danger. four partnerships to be effective, our citizens must be secure. our efforts must be welcome. the politics -- politics based on anger and dividing the world between us and them not only setback international initiatives, it undermines all of us. let us remember that muslims have suffered the most at the hand of extremism. on the same day are some plans were killed in benghazi, a turkish police officer was murdered in istanbul only days before his wedding. others were killed in a car bomb. seral afghan children were marred by their children just days after they were killed by a suicide bomber in kabul. the violence may initially be focused on the west, but over time, it cannot be contained. the same impulses towards extremism are used to justify war between sunni and shiites. it leads not to st
resources and energy. japan realized a low carbon and sound material society facing the world. we need more innovation in energy and renewable energy. in light of the accident on march 11 last year, the companies in japan aiming at realizing a society not dependent on nuclear power ending in the 2013's and will reexamine the politics, including the international situation. we will mobilize all sources to demonstrate to the world a model of economic growth. we must direct our attention. directed at the un general assembly this month, can be in visiting the next generation and allowing people. -- and young people. japan is determined to continue the worldwide efforts in order to establish -- the idea of human security must remove emphasis on the african continent which has potential development but is still suffering from many challenges such as natural disasters and conflicts. the location of the fifth tokyo conference were taken in june next year, japan discussed the actions japan and the international community should take. we must completely resolve challenges that place our precious live
level. let's get some more questions. 1, 2, and 3 back there. >> michael from the department of energy. i am curious as to your perspective about how likely it is the tensions you describe are likely to affect oil production in the near term, whether it is through outright destruction -- destruction or deterring foreign investment. thank you. >> the gentleman with the blue shirt. sorry about that. i did not see the person in the back. >> my question is more directed to mr. frederic. seeing similar dynamics in the yemen with regard to competing militias, the lack of a central government control, what type of lessons are we learning from these states and also, with these type of dynamics, how can the u.s. be supportive in their transitions? >> let's take a third one. the person in the back than i could not see that i interrupted. >> my name is robert. we have seen a number of american companies who are chomping at the bit to look at the opportunities and libya. all of the sector's need to be brought up to date. given the fact several of you have been there recently, from the perspective
fix it, but going around it and addressing the questions of energy and water in a much more multi- lateral way. that is my take on where i think we can go. i would like to take the rest of the time to have a discussion. whenever you want to discuss -- whatever you want to discuss thank you. [applause] should i join you? if i can just stand here, it is fine with me. >> your presentation about these days. we thought about going to pakistan to turn it into the next is on. -- the next islam. i knew both countries very well. before we turn to the q and a, you mentioned 2008, the captivity of the pakistan states. [indiscernible] the partnership meant some trust. it was always on the line, but never really defined. do you say, looking back, that both existed at the time? >> yes, i do. i think it still exists. people who claim we have come to a parting of ways and, why do you not just admit pakistan is bad and we are good? people are frustrated. understandably frustrated. i understand about frustration. if you are frustrated to walk away, i would make the same statement about the people w
, they have the right to the peaceful use of nuclear energy within the framework of the bt. and with the commitment by all of these countries provided the necessary steps with the countries of the region so as to remove any suspicion around a peaceful intentions of these programs. mr. president, the conflict of justice, truth and dignity, encompassed in our view the frameworks of government and international relations. there is no debt that in this view of international relations, undoubtedly, in justice has been inflicted on the african continent. i do not think i need to go through the previous commitments made in this hall to both the development and economic growth of africa through aid and investment. the world has a responsibility to support africa's efforts. through providing assistance needed to restore the treasures of african countries taken over consecutive eras, the last of which was under the thought that supporting an unjust regimes would assist in achieving a fake stability to achieve a fake justice, while these regimes were spreading corruption and smuggling
as to why -- energy prices and so on. there's no way of glossing around that. but when these huge deficits went in place in 1981, what's called the real interest rates -- the spread between inflation and what a loan costs you doubled -- and that's still the case today. and the result is interest costs that have never been seen before in terms of real charges, and it's attributable to the deficit. everybody -- every economist, every businessman -- believes that. your own council of economic advisers -- mr. feldstein in his report told you that. every chairman of the finance and ways and means committee, republican leaders in the senate and the house are telling you that. that deficit is ruining the long-term hopes for this economy. it's causing high interest rates. it's ruining us in trade. it's given us the highest small business failure in 50 years. the economy is starting downhill with housing failure --- >> thank you, mr. mondale. you're both very obedient. i have to give you credit for that. we now start our final round of questions. we do want to have time for your rebuttal. we start
of a poorly functioning financial sector. worryingly, the energy to implement the reforms that have been agreed as well as other reforms that we need are fading in little bit. and i am often asked and i am sure the some of the central bankers and providers are asked the same question. are we now better off than five years ago? probably so. are we out of the loop? do we have everything we need in terms of assistance, in terms of detecting the systems? most people, supervisors in particular, and certainly the imf would say not yet despite major progress. i know all of these seem a little bit bleak. but let me assure you that we have not overlooked the reaction to recent policy announcements. and those are strong and good positive reactions. but we have seen positive market response of before that turned out to be short-lived. this time, what we need is not bounce.balance we need a sustained rebound. to be different, we need certainty more than uncertainty and we need decision makers to turn into action takers. it will require courage and the ability to rise above the short- term agenda of
country back on track. mber one, all across america, we have our energy. let's use that energy and put people back to work. gas, oil, coal, minerals, it is here, it is ours, and on day one he will say yes to the keystone pipeline so we can get that will coming to our country. in our state, midwestern manufacturing states, we have lost a lot of work. a lot of people in the prime of their lives, they are in between. we have to have a system where people can get skills they need to get back on track, to get in a career said that the american dream can be placed within their reach. we need to fix our schools. we need to honor to parents and as children and not the special interests that are standing in the way of these educational reforms. we need trade that works for america so we can make more things in america and sell them overseas. it is a simple idea. we cannot keep spending money we just do not have. we have got to balance this budget. we have got to get this debt under control. it is our duty to save the american dream for the american children and grandchildren. we have to remembe
iraq from becoming a nuclear weapons power, and getting the international atomic energy agency to watch the iranians and make sure they don't go beyond what they should be doing in the enrichment of uranium. the president has put in place very tough sanctions, the toughest ever put in place against iran -- president obama has done that -- and he has reserved the right at the end of the date for the united states foto use force, but he is putting that off for diplomacy. i worked with president george w. bush and secretary of state condoleezza rice on the iran issue for three years. there is a remarkable similarity between the george w. bush policy on iran and barack obama policy. i get the sense in my discussions with senators and congressmen and women on capitol hill that there is a basic bipartisan support for this policy that the last two american presidents have undertaken. we don't want to go to war right now, we don't want to open up the possibility of a third land war in the middle east after iraq and afghanistan. we want to focus on obama's because that is -- we want to focus on

to really provide stimulus for this economy. we don't have an energy policy and have not had a budget in three years. as a result, businesses are waiting to see and what happens with the election and waiting to see what their lives will look like, the tax rates, regulation, etc. they are upheld by the health care expense, so they're waiting until after the election to decide if they will hire new workers and put new money to work. we really aren't in standstill mode in the u.s. economy right now. caller: another story -- i want to ask you about using the word "brace." guest: i think the president has had an antagonistic relationship with business. i think that's pretty clear. over the last several months he did lose the independent vote and the business vote. if the numbers show that he is actually winning, i could understand that now they are disappointed, because they were counting on some competition. but i don't think you can really tell right now. it's hard to know how accurate the polls are. in some cases i think the media is pulling democrats and other cases people don't necess
of energy into that. why shouldn't they have the same energy and exposure side-by-side with you and mr. sadler as before the primary? >> we are debating here today. we will debate in a couple of weeks. in the meantime, i am on the road in a different city between just about every day between now and election day. >> but why can not we have another debate? why not the one in houston? what are you afraid of? >> i am focusing on supporting our campaign. that is what we're doing. i'm listening to the voters of campaign -- tx. >> you can build the support in a debate. >> we agree to this one. look -- i understand you are working very hard to get media coverage. it is not our obligation to help you in that. you can go convey your message to texas voters. i am conveying mine. >> is your obligation to face the voters of texas. >> i am doing that. >> as you said, state by tv, is the critical point. you have had the opportunity. even for the tea party debate, which she would not do. why what he faced me now? >> we are sitting here right now. you can launch every attack you want to right now, on
